“What’s left now is to play baseball well,”
said Lotte Giants legend Lee Dae-ho to Seo Jun-won ahead of his retirement.토토사이트
In particular, Seo Jun-won left behind a message of affection as Lee Dae-ho’s junior at Gyeongnam High School.
Before the retirement ceremony last season, Lee Dae-ho said to Seo Jun-won, “Now that I am married and have a baby, the only thing left is to play baseball well.”
In 2019, Seo Jun-won started his splendid pro career with the first nomination for Lotte.
He recorded 123 appearances, 318.2 innings, 15 wins and 23 losses, and an earned run average of 5.56 over four seasons in the KBO League.
In particular, he made full preparations such as joining Geelong Korea in the Australian league ahead of this season, and posted an average ERA of 4.05 in 6.2 innings in this demonstration game.
However, according to the Busan District Prosecutor’s Office on the 23rd, Seo Jun-won was indicted on charges of violating the Act on the Protection of Children and Adolescents’ Sexual Exploitation (production and distribution of sexual exploitation, etc.).
Accordingly, the Lotte team immediately decided to release Seo Jun-won. Here, he can also see the deprivation of the Choi Dong-won Award, which he won in high school.
According to a media outlet on the 26th, the Choi Dong-won Memorial Association, which runs the Choi Dong-won Award, said, “The crime committed is very serious.”
The Choi Dong-won Award is a ‘Korean Cy Young Award’ awarded to the best Korean pitchers in the KBO league and high school baseball,
Excuses are also clear mistakes that cannot be heard. Here, Seo Jun-won initially explained that he “didn’t know he was a minor,” but as a result of the prosecution’s investigation, it turned out to be a lie.
In the difficult Korean baseball situation, I had an accident like ‘pour oil on the fire’. It is placed in a situation of endless abyss.
From Lotte’s point of view, pitcher resources were lost, but it is an action that should not be taken.
Meanwhile, the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) will soon open a reward and punishment committee for Seo Jun-won to determine the level of disciplinary action.
